    How to record videos to post on YouTube

    I was wondering if somebody can help me out with this. To cut right to the chase, I want to start recording myself playing guitar and post it on YouTube, much like the videos you see on there by many other guitarists. By my problem is, I don't know how to go about doing it. I figured one way to go about this would be to get a webcam, video record myself actually recording the guitar part with my audio software, and then sync up the audio with the video to post on YT. Can anyone recommend a good quality webcam, or possibly an alternative way of doing this?

    Digital camera > Record yourself playing Canon Rock or any other repeated solo that all those other losers play > Upload video to your computer > Upload video to You Tube....

    LOL, nah man, I wouldn't play Canon Rock or any overused, cliched covers. And I'd probably disable comments as well.

    Dude just mike your amp and tape with your webcamera. It's youtube, noone expects studio quality from you. That's me playing one of my songs last year, recorded with that silver mike that's sticking out on the top right -



    And the comments you get are based on what you post in the first place. Why would you disable them anyway?

    Not bad! And why aren't you in the Guitar Room more often?

    Get a Logitech one. If you have an extra buck, get Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 , with Carl Zeiss optics and 960x720 resolution you can't be wrong.

    With all honesty I hardly know anything about guitars! I've only got that one Peavey, but I'm a real nut when it comes to recording though. Should we have a Studio Room I'd be all other it .

    I love capture cards. Much better quality than webcams. HD if you need.
